Australia: Terror threat

A FRIGHTENING new Islamic State magazine has encouraged lone wolves to attack and kill Australians in public acts of terror.

“Kill them on the streets of Brunswick, Broadmeadows, Bankstown, and Bondi. Kill them at the MCG, the SCG, the Opera House, and even in their backyards,” an article published on Monday in the new English-language online periodical urged.

“Stab them, shoot them, poison them, and run them down with your vehicles.

“Kill them wherever you find them until the hollowness of their arrogance is filled with terror and they find themselves on their knees with their backs broken under the weight of regret for having waged a war against the believers, and by Allah’s will, and then through your sacrifices, this Ummah [community of Muslims] will be victorious.”

The editorial from the terrorist organisation, entitled Among The Believers Are Men, also alleged that Melbourne man Ezzit Raad, who was convicted over a plan to blow-up the Melbourne Cricket Ground in 2005, died while fighting for IS in November 2015.

The organisation paid tribute to Raad, who fled Australia for Syria in 2013, where he recruited others to fight for the terrorist group.

The article shows a photo of what appears to be Raad’s body.

It also paid tribute to Melbourne teenager Adam Dahman, also known as Abu Bakras, who carried out a suicide bombing in Iraq in 2014.
